How to Identify and Fix Common Vacuum Problems ?

Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced Vacuum Technicians :

There are three main causes for your Miele to not power on: The power switch has failed. The cord reel is damaged. Your motor has gone bad.
Overheating may be caused by a blockage in the vacuum, or due to a full dustbag and/or filters. Follow the steps outlined in the Blockage section above to resolve this issue. Once clear, the vacuum should no longer overheat.
To do this, turn on the vacuum and press the reset button. The service indicator light will turn off and then be reset to its original position. This will only work if the indicator light has already come on, not if the reset button has been pushed between filter changes.
Should you ever need have your Miele vacuum cleaner repaired, simply stop by a Miele Vacuum Repair Centre. Regardless of whether your vacuum cleaner is still covered by Miele warranty or not, you can expect outstanding service at one of our conveniently located Vacuum Repair Centres.
Check that the vacuum cleaner is plugged into a working power outlet and that fuses and breakers don`t need resetting. An activated thermal cut-out due to a blockage is the next most likely cause of the problem. Check for blockages in the hose and filters, and remove any obstructions that you find.
Loose connections will cause your vacuum cleaner to lose suction. Make sure that the dust container, the hose, the tube and the brush are all attached properly. If the problem continues, your vacuum cleaner might have a technical problem. If you suspect this to be the case, contact an authorised service agent.
When a thermal cut off activates, it shuts the motor down. This prevents the motor from overheating to a point where it will no longer function and will need replacing.
Durability & Warranty – If you`re looking for a vacuum cleaner with durability and longevity, look no further than Miele. Miele vacuum cleaners are designed and tested to last for 20 years. Miele vacuum cleaners come with a 7-year warranty on the motor and a 1-year warranty on parts and labor.
Washing Machine Fails to Start

Reason 1: Problem with the socket or machine not plugged in. Reason 2: Door not closed properly. Reason 3: The on/off switch is set to `off`. Reason 4: Bulb cover is loose.

Miele Washing Machines are vigorously tested to last the equivalent of 20 years use. Miele Washing Machines are ecological and consume only the amount of water and electricity needed for excellent cleaning and rinsing results.
Miele Quality – forever better

Looking to the future, we promise to maintain the dependability and durability of our appliances. For full information on Miele`s 20 year pledge, read more.

A strong odor from the shellac that coats the copper coil windings is an indicator that the motor is about to or has burnt out. If the motor is still running, even if it turns on and off by itself as it is heating and cooling, you can still run the motor until it gives up for good.
The most common problem with a vacuum cleaner is also the easiest to remedy: clogs in the hose or attachments. Also the electrical cord, motor, switch, fan, brushes, and motor bearings can all need repair or replacement.
To fix a clog in the hose, feed one end into a garbage bag, and poke the other end with the back of a mop pole, until you push the clog material out into the garbage bag. To fix a clog in the vacuum, whether it is a canister or bag, use your finger to feel for a clog. Pull as much of it out as you can and discard.
Once all of the checks have been done allow the cleaner to cool down which is usually around 45 minutes. Once its cooled down and plugged back in it should start to work again as the cut out is designed to automatically reset.
Burning smell can indicate motor damage

If you suspect that the motor is damaged, you should not continue to use the vacuum cleaner! The cause of motor damage is usually wear and tear or damage caused by prolonged improper use (e.g. overheating). In most cases, it is not worth repairing.

If the tube is disconnected from the load/speaker the impedance mismatch will cause to tube to overheat to the point that the plate will heat up until it melts or at least shorts out to other parts of the tube then causing current to flow to other parts of the circuit sometime causing a cascade effect taking out other …
In the radiation mode of heat transfer, heat energy gets transferred through all media and also through the vacuum.
Excellent Longevity

Most dishwashers will have an average lifespan of around 5 – 10 years but a Miele could last up to 20 years.

On top of your vacuum`s bag door, there should be a small window with an indicator light. When the Miele vacuum bag full indicator turns red, you`ll know it`s time to change the bag.
A vacuum cleaner can run continuously for 30 – 60 min each time. The vacuum cleaner has no suction power. For example, a hair cannot be sucked up.
A button or switch on many computers that allows you to reset the computer. When you press the reset button, the computer will enter its start-up procedure as if you had turned the power off and then on again. Generally, you would use the reset button only when a program error has caused your computer to hang.
The first thing you should do if your washer won`t power on is check your home`s electrical panel for a tripped circuit breaker. If it`s not a tripped breaker, the problem could be with the outlet itself; it may need replaced by a qualified electrician. Alternatively, the washer motor could have overheated.
“Do you think it`s worthwhile to repair my Miele appliance?” This is a question I am frequently asked, and my answer is often the same: Yes, it is often worthwhile to repair a Miele appliance. In many cases, a simple service is all that is needed to get your appliance working like new again.

Electrolux Epic 6500SR Full Bag sensor working, Does not Reset properly
ANSWER : The problem was a sticking switch that was not being reset. The vacuum on/off switch mechanism is comprised of two switches. One is the main switch that turns the vacuum on and off. The second is a shut off switch that gets tripped when the full bag sensor is engaged. This second switch is supposed to get reset when you push the on/off switch on the outside of the machine. The full bag shutoff switch was stiff and it, therefore, was taking a couple of presses of the on/off switch to move the shutoff switch back into the running position.

Won’t start. My son was using the vacuum & Didn’t change the bag. The vacuum was making the full bag smell, but the light was’t on & it didn’t stop. I stopped him, changed the bag, checked the filter, closed the compartments & turned on the vacuum. Nothing happened. I checked to be sure that it was plugged in, that wasn’t the problem. I’ve let the vacuum “rest” for several days, It still won’t start. Any suggestions?
ANSWER : There is a reset button at the back of the powerhead. The user manual can be downloaded from the electrolux website, although I didn’t find it very useful. There was some info on how to change the powerhead drive belt.

I have a miele S712 (2 yrs old worked fine yesterday) – I had been doing some diy work inside and had the vac on just to reduce some of the dust in the air – after a while the vacuum fizzled out. I guessed it had overheated and took it outside to cool down – when I tried to turn it back on pressing the power button gives it power and it starts to **** but it won’t STAY on, soon as you release the power button it stops, and the orange bag indicator is showing full. As I have a compressor I took
ANSWER : You have got dust in the micro switch and it is not latching on, if you look at this and clean it, that will solve your problem, however blowing the motir has probably wrecked the motor bearings.

Overheated vacuum After I finished vacuuming the library last night I changed the bag and shook out both filters and vacuum would not restart. The canister unit felt real warm to the touch but I had been using it a least 1/2 hour non stop. The bag was pretty full but not overly so. It’s a Simplicity canister with power head. The carpet is long shag from the 70’s Did it just over heat? Thanks Shauna
ANSWER : It normally won’t over heat unless the bag is too full, the filters are clogged, or you have have a clog in the hose or down by the brush roll, the inlet may be clogged. Some will restart after a while, some others have a reset to push. If it won’t power on, then you have a problem and it will have to serviced.

Stopped working – warning light on
ANSWER : Dear Lauren, can you please tell me where to buy these Miele parts? I have a Flamenco ii (red one). I was told by one repair shop owner that mine has the american made version of the motor (as opposed to the german made one). The diagnosis is that the Miele’s motor control circuit board #04416342 is gone bad. But I was quoted $125 for this part. Seems quite expensive to me. Any idea where I can get them cheaper?
Thanks!

Won’t work My Eureka Mighty Mite 3670 Bagged, was working fine, and we unplugged it to switch to another outlet in another room and it just stopped. We tried several other outlets and it just won’t turn on. We thought maybe it got hot because we had been using it for a while and we let it rest for a while and then changed the bag just to be sure, although it was not full. But it still will not turn on. Any ideas?

.1 Other User Has the Same Problem.Comment by Guest, posted on Jun 06, 2008.I had the same problem today. Have a 9 amp model I bought 10 years ago which I never use. It has been sitting for years. Today put in new bag and ran it continuously for 45 minutes. After I turned it of it wouldn’t restart. Tried another outlet and wouldn’t restart. Felt canister at back and motor housing was hot so I thought I might need to let it cool down. After letting vacuum cool off for 10 minutes it restarted. All I can assume is that the vacuum has a built in overheat sensor on the motor. . .Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Eureka Mighty Mite #3670 Bagged Canister. I have the same type Mighty Mite Canister and from what you are saying the must be some type of heat sensor that is shutting off the motor to protect it from excessive heat. Al of the old ones have had lower amps and did not needs the heat sensor but once the bag is full and the filter clogged; they will shut down as well. They all use a plastic hose to clean with and that even gets hot sometimes. So I suggest that you get an owner’s manual from the manufacturer on you particular model so that id if happens again, you will be prepared. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
